Between our Fast Response and Our Experience in Restoration, our SERVPRO Team can Help Recover Poughkeepsie Homes After Fire Losses 

With how traumatic fire losses can be for Poughkeepsie homes and businesses, it is a situation that property owners want to resolve as soon as possible. With so many layers of damaging effects that can exist after extinguishment, worsening conditions persist after the actual fire has been stopped. As a leading fire restoration company for Dutchess County, we can work to provide a fast and reliable response when you are ready for both evaluations of the damage and the necessary steps to restore this damage. 

Fire damage restoration for Poughkeepsie homes involves numerous professionals in our roster, not only the Fire & Smoke Restoration Technicians (FSRT.) From cleaning technicians to odor control specialists, many qualified professionals on our SERVPRO teamwork towards making fire damage "Like it never even happened," for your residence. Choosing a comprehensive restoration approach from mitigation through build back and repair can ensure that you get back into your property faster and that the recovery is more cost-efficient. 

How is SERVPRO Faster To Any Size Disaster?  

Striving to be a consistently reliable restoration company in the Greater New York metropolitan area and the Hudson River Valley means a preparedness level that embodies water and fire damage concerns. With fire restoration service calls being such a constant need for the thousands of residents in Poughkeepsie, we ensure that we have several active strategies working simultaneously to reach most loss incidents within hours of the first notice of loss. Several of these include: 

  • Fire Chasing – This term for our professionals means staying aware of active emergencies in the city and what we might be asked to do to help. In some situations, knowledge of emergencies and conversations with insurance providers enables us to mobilize even before we get the customer's call. 
  • Experienced Technicians – Experience is not just knowing what to do on a job site, but also knowing how to quickly gather necessary tools, products, and devices to allow the Green Fleet to roll out faster. 
  • Production Vehicles at the Ready – Between our box trucks and trailers stocked with fire and water restoration equipment 24/7, we have little else that needs to get gathered up before our technicians can get boots on the ground to help your fire damage situation. 
  • 24/7 Staffed Emergency Lines – Speaking to real people after a crisis is comforting. However, we also staff emergency lines to ensure that we get all the pertinent information in the first conversation. 

How Can SERVPRO Help with Fire Damage Claims?  

A complete evaluation of your Poughkeepsie home's fire damage is information that your insurance company needs to approve damaged claims. We walk through the property with you to evaluate the origin point of the fire and catalog the current conditions. We determine what steps and processes are necessary to return the house to the preloss state during this phase. Our objectives to get claims approved quickly include: 

  • Job Scoping
  • Damage Cataloging
  • Data Collection 
  • Material/Content Discarding
  • Photographic Evidence 
  • Prompt Estimations 

What Tools Aid in Fast Fire Mitigation?  

The mitigation of fire loss effects often focuses on removing residues and soils from surfaces and contents. Wet cleaning, such as dissolving and emulsification, can help in these regards with suitable underlying materials. Mitigation also involves cleaning the environment of circulating particles and carcinogens. We also address water damage left behind after extinguishment. Some of the necessary tools for this include: 

  • Air Scrubbers – Through HEPA filtration, air scrubbers can remove a bulk of circulating particles as small as 0.3 microns. These microscopic particulates get trapped in the onboard filters as air is pulled and pushed through the unit.
  • Hydroxyl Generators – After a fire, simultaneously addressing multiple concerns is ideal when possible. In certain situations, hydroxyl machines can remove particles from the environment with HEPA filtration, but can also use a UV cleaning spectrum to eliminate harsh odors in open areas.
  • Extractors – Because water is often the standard choice for suppression and extinguishment when structure fires escalate beyond a fire extinguisher's capabilities, standing water can become a considerable concern where fires burned the worst. Extractors like submersible pumps and wet vacuums can help to eliminate these threats and wet debris left behind. 

As challenging as fire losses might initially appear, you can count on the experience and fast response of our SERVPRO of NW & SE Dutchess County team to help. Give us a call anytime at (845) 635-4550.
